Botswana: Camphill Community Trust hosted a fundraising walk in Otse over the course of the previous weekend, 25th of May 2024. The event was hosted under the theme of ‘Walk together so no one is left behind’.

The event was supported by the Debswana Diamonds Company Limited to raise funds for the welfare of the community. Debswana Executive Head of Corporate Affairs, Rachel Lungile Mothibatsela was the Chief Walker for the fund raiser.


The collaboration between Debswana and Camphill Community is to work towards the development of the community. In line with this mandate, Debswana in collaboration with De Beers Global Sightholder Sales (DBGSS) and an international Sightholder company, Diarough Pty Ltd, are working towards making a positive and sustainable impact at the  Camphill community.

At the event, the international sight holder Company, Diarough Pty Ltd announced its commitment to support the Trust with P500, 000. The support amount will go towards refurbishing Camphill facilities to achieve its sustainability goals.

This is in addition to the financial support the company had previously given to the community. As per Debswana, they are responsible for funding the renovation of a Tea Garden located at the centre at a sum of P771, 000.

Mothibatsela delivered brief remarks at the event. She urged the Camphill Community Trust to take the walk and the commitments for support seriously. She tasked them with the responsibility to build a sustainable future for the centre.

She urged them to develop and grow with the support that they have received at the fundraiser walk. She hoped that the donation will result in provision of better facilities for the people of the community.

She also asked the members of the Camphill Community Center to take care of the infrastructure improvements. Rachel Lungile Mothibatsela highlighted that these developments will benefit the community in the future.


She was happy that members of the community even from outside Otse had decided to give their time to attend and contribute to the fundraiser. They did their part for the community by paying a registration fee.

She was delighted to see the community working together to ensure that the community center can continue to operate.
